High-End Personal Trainer in Placentia tells it how it is…

Does Placentia make these 5 Fitness mistakes?


Dear Placentia,


If you always wanted to fit into those skinny jeans, and you’ve been trying hard to get into that great shape…what you’ll need is a solid Fitness program with healthy nutrition habits (…we all know that). However, as a Placentia Personal Trainer I see many residents jumping into the most random workout Fitness programs, and making some very common mistakes while doing so.

And it’s this starting of an exercise program with no instructions or planning that often leads to burnout…and frustration.


So therefore, be sure to avoid these five nasty pitfalls:

  1. Ignoring the warm-up
    I know, warming up is boring…at least I think it is. But the fact is that warming up will get you into that mind state of “Must. Work. Out. Now.” And it will even get you excited to do so. Trust me, I’ve noticed it myself where I walked into the gym grumpy…only to be totally exhilarated 10 minutes later after doing my warm-up. Plus, if you get a warm-up in you will slowly increase your heart rate and prepare your muscles, tendons, and ligaments for the loads that are coming.


  2. Going into the sauna right after the workout
    Always try a cool shower first. This allows your heart rate to return to normal while your blood vessels go back to their normal size. If you were to jump straight into a sauna or hot tub, the high temperatures may cause you to feel dizzy or in the worst case…even cause a heart attack. Scary stuff…so just cool down first after a workout.

  3. Holding your breath while lifting weights
    Lifting weights will cause your body to need more oxygen, and if you hold your breath while doing this your blood pressure will significantly rise. I always instruct my Placentia and Fullerton Personal Training clients to breathe in through the nose, out through the mouth – this ensures a maximum amount of oxygen entering the lungs.

  4. Pushing your heart rate a little too much
    If you just keep on pushing your heart rate up and up, your lungs and heart are being overstressed. Besides, there are far better workouts around that keep you moving and combine core, cardio, and resistance training all in one so you save time and keep the results coming your way.

  5. Ankle & Wrist weights
    They look cool, but that’s where it stops (And no, they won’t make your butt or legs more toned) I agree with the theory that your caloric expenditure goes up by using them…but so does your risk of injury in any fast movements.


I am going to be honest here. The reason I’m telling you this is because I have made all these mistakes myself. You see, it was only a couple of years ago that I myself was trying to burn off all the fat from my own problem areas.



It took me about a year of trial and error to get it right…but once I did my entire life flipped upside down. I instantly felt more energetic and I know for a fact that I have gotten things out of life I would’ve never been able to if I was still out of shape. That’s also the reason why I became a Placentia and Yorba Linda Personal Trainer.





Ever since I started Straight-Up Fitness I feel like I’ve never worked a day in my life. My job is to help people get to their Fitness goals without wasting their time or effort – which to me is one of the best jobs in the world. That’s why I take great pride in what I do, and that is also why I offer a guarantee for my clients:

Placentia Personal Trainers



Located right to the East of the 57 Freeway, Placentia is a city flanked by 2 major cities that are very important to Straight-Up Fitness as we have many clients coming from these areas, especially through our Yorba Linda Personal Training program. Also, Fortunately Straight-Up Fitness also offers Personal Training in Anaheim and will get the job done without wasting your time if you don’t live in Placentia yourself.

The city of Placentia never was a popular place to live until the 1970’s came around the corner and brought along 20,000 new residents in only a couple of years time. At the moment Placentia is still considered to be a fast-growing city with over 45,000 residents and some of the best schooling systems, churches, and recreation facilities in Southern California. These Placentia recreational facilities are also the main playing ground for my Placentia Personal Training programs. As a Placentia Personal Trainer I am often found in the Goldenrod Park or the Richard Samp Park. With nice weather, and the friendly Placentia environment, delivering my Placentia Personal Training services never feels like real ‘work’. But then again, Personal Training in general never really does. To help someone else is often the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself, and my Placentia Personal Training clients can all attest to that as they go on and teach their loved ones everything that their Placentia Personal Trainer just taught them.
